This quantity is the newest in a sequence of biennial checks of the medical and technical caliber of the military study Laboratory (ARL). the present record summarizes findings for the 2007-2008 interval, within which ninety five volunteer specialists in fields of technology and engineering participated within the following actions: traveling ARL every year, receiving formal shows of technical paintings, analyzing amenities, undertaking technical discussions with ARL employees, and reviewing ARL technical fabrics. the final caliber of ARL's technical employees and their paintings is still amazing, in addition to the relevance in their paintings to military wishes. ARL maintains to show a transparent, passionate situation for the tip person of its technology--the soldier within the box. whereas directorates have huge program-support missions, there's substantial customer-support paintings around the directorates, which universally display mindfulness of the significance of transitioning expertise to help instant and near-term military wishes. ARL employees additionally proceed to extend their involvement with the broader medical and engineering group. This involvement comprises tracking suitable advancements in different places, accomplishing major collaborative paintings (including the Collaborative expertise Alliances), and sharing paintings via peer studies. mostly, ARL is operating rather well inside a suitable learn and improvement area of interest and has been demonstrating major accomplishments.

A closely related suite of problems of increasing importance to the Army lies in the ability to accumulate, analyze, understand, and efficiently process human and electronic intelligence about relationships between individuals and organizations in an asymmetric battlespace. This capability was referred to as “ information fusion” in the 2005-2006 assessment report. CISD has recognized the importance of networks in general by the establishment of the new NSD, and it is clear that several new projects within ISD are oriented toward getting up to speed specifically on information-fusion applications.
An emphasis on the core long-term relevant scientific problems and an articulation of short- versus long-term strategic goals would help in continuing to maximize the value of CISD’s research portfolio to the Army. A suggested additional metric might relate to how CISD’s customers perceive the value of their collaborations, with a related discussion of how expectations and requirements are developed in light of such a metric. COMPUTATIONAL AND INFORMATION SCIENCES DIRECTORATE 25 In addition to addressing the assessment criteria, there are several other observations in a variety of areas.
The new physical facility is impressive, and several well-qualified staff members are in place. It is not as clear, however, that they have identified the research questions that this HRED facility can uniquely answer. For example, What are the classic questions in psychoacoustics that can be revisited in this new facility? How will the staff see the work through from conception to publication? For each component of the laboratory, the general tenor of the research to be conducted was provided to the Board, but details were lacking.
